      Yup I agree with you Mike Iszak. I think the rock he is living on is called
      United States or Canada ;)
      Lots of sites isn't listed or logged yet. Just got back from my last cruise
      trip this year. Most of the LTR & Trunked systems wasn't even listed on RR.
      Like Guatemala, Nicaragua, Colombia, Aruba, Costa Rica, and Mexico still
      have many that isn't listed yet. 90% of trunked systems I found wasn't
      listed on RR.
      If John looks around RR (outside of United States). He will notice some
      countries is still missing lots of info.
